Want twice recently to Beirut outlet on Amador Causeway. Meze is tasty and plentiful, patio is convivial (though the music can be loud if you are looking for a peaceful meal) but what distinguishes it in Panama City is the attentive and friendly service. An all to rare commodity among many of the city's restaurants.

Food, ambiance, and service all rate four stars for me. I went to the one in the city for my birthday with friends and we were not disappointed. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere electric! Meals were reasonably priced, plentiful and delicous. The hummus was tasty and served with warm homemade pita bread. I will be going back again...and... More

A friend recently introduced us to the Beirut and ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees, drinks and desserts. Every item was delicious. And another surprise for us was the extremely fast service. We will go back anytime we are in El Cangrejo.

Beirut has many good things, and is a place for everybody. I have gone with friends, colleagues, we had a small party for my daughter´s birthday (with a belly dancer), etc., and I had never had a disappointment. It is not your upscale luxury restaurant, but the food is good and the service follows. The owner is always there, overlooking... More

We really enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner here! Great atmosphere and energy. They even had live belly dancers. The food was great and the beer was cold. We met a lot of cool people from all parts of the world here!

I almost didn't go because I read Tripadvisor reviews that said it was overpriced. Tripadvisor friends, this isn't fast food, and the prices are reasonable. I had a huge bowl of lentil soup, pita and tibouli for $10. I tried my friend's hummus - all the food was tasty. The belly dancer wasn't too intrusive. Interesting, fun decor. We sat... More

The place is always busy, the service is good, there are strolling belly dancers that like to get the crowd involved, there are hookahs for those who want hookahs and the atmosphere and décor hits the mark but the food this time was not as good as before, the hummus was a bit more bland, lacked tahini, the bread was...

Didn't expect to eat at a Lebanese restaurant in Panama but it was highly recommended and near our hotel. It was great. The food, the ambience and the service was the best. A gentleman who was either an owner or manage (can't remember, we were tired...just arrived) chatted with us for quite a while about the world. I had the... More

We didn't expect to be eating Lebanese food in Panama City, but this place was just down the road from our hotel, always busy, and with great smells wafting out from the outdoor seating area. The meal was exceptional. We each had one of the sampler plates and the variety of flavors and textures were delightful.

This place serves very expensive and not very nice arabic food. having lived in the middle east for 5 years, I can safely say that the food in this place is way way way below the quality of an average hole in the wall take away in Arabia. I ordered kofte and various mezze. The kofte was totally dry and... More
